Co-designers David Lari and Drew Taylor are the creative minds responsible for the new MeckVotes app for the iPhone. Here's a look at what the free application offers:
- Announcements about upcoming elections
- Early voting information such as locations and hours of operation
- Allows you to find your elected officials
- Search for your polling location by your address
- Set voting reminders
- Let friends on your social network know you voted
Lari, a system architect for the County's Business Support Services Agency Information Technology, wrote the code for the application. Taylor, an information technology manager at the Board of Elections, acted as beta tester and subject-matter expert.
"We wanted to make it easier for voters to find information about voting and elections," Lari said.
The app is available at the Apple iTunes store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/meckvotes/id688359212?ls=1&mt=8
"This will allow voters another way to connect with us to find out election related information," Taylor said.
